Steps to prepare

  • Sieve all dry ingredients , mix cardamom powder and keep it aside. I have skipped baking powder. You can add if you wish to.
  • Beat butter and sugar for 4-5 minutes in a bowl. Add egg and blend until they are light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and blend well
  • Add dry ingredients and mix until dough comes together. Even if dough is slightly sticky , it’s OK. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour
  • Preheat oven to 180 deg cel and line baking tray with parchment paper
  • Make small balls of dough and lightly flatten it. Place them on the tray leaving gap between them
  • Bake it for 9 -11 mins. Sides should be crispy and center soft. Do not overbake…They should be just firm to touch
  • Cool cookies on tray for 15 minutes. Allow to cool completely on wire rack
  • Store in airtight container and serve with warm milk or cup of tea.
